My Birthday & Thanksgiving Thursday

"Birthdays are a time to celebrate, reflect and rejoice." ~Mama Hen
Today is my birthday and I am excited to be on a fun mini trip with my adorable Little Chick! It seems like not so long ago that I wrote my post for my fortieth birthday last year. I can't believe how fast the time has a way of flying by. I decided that I wanted to go up North for a night and stay at one of our favorite little Inns on the water. I did not want to do dishes, laundry, make beds, etc. I did not want to think about anything but having fun with my daughter. We had so much fun yesterday stopping for our favorite ladies luncheon and then settling in at our Inn and heading to the pool for some splish splashing fun. We relaxed a bit with a great book and then headed to dinner and then another wonderful swim. Little Chick is swimming like a pro! I am looking forward to a fabulous year!

Our cozy room.
Our fantastic view.
A walk by the water.
Little Chick swimming back and forth with no float! Yippeeeee!
Resting before dinner with a great book.
Our wonderful table on the water and next to the fish tank.

Back in the pool after dinner. Yahooooo!
Little Chick is cozy and asleep and I am curled up by the fireplace with a great book!
Ahhhhhh! What a wonderful day!
Thanksgiving Thursday: 1.) Little Chick and my family. 2.) Birthdays! Thank You Dear Lord for each second, each moment, each day, each month and each year! 3.) Grandma Hen's gift of sending Little Chick and I for a wonderful birthday getaway! 4.) For Little Chick's huge heart and endless love and care for everyone around her. 5.) For my friends Marcy and Geri who always know what to say and how to make me laugh!
